UFC Fight Night Prediction: Gina Mazany vs Shanna Young Best Bet

As we stumble our way into another specular UFC fight night card, one of the biggest draws in MMA makes her triumphant return. "Danger" Gina Mazany looks to pick up right where she left off, or maybe not entirely as she was TKOed in her last go at it, but still at least transferring the enthusiasm that she emphatically always delivers in the first round and then some. The seven and five phenom will look to rise to an impressive eight victories against Shanna "Dobson '' Young.

The Shannimal is coincidentally also looking for a bounce-back performance as well after being bested by the likes of Stephanie Egger a good deal ago. Although Gina's career might be at stake after a recent rough patch of things, I would still give the "who wants it more" attribute of the fight to Shanna at the end of the day due to most definitely needing to pay off some bills associated with the birth of her second kid.

Regardless of motivations, this fight is going to more or less be an absolute barnburner or at worst a drag-out slobberknocker, where all skill be damned but the athleticism is recommended. An interesting tidbit to jot down is that Mazany is a hammer house power grappler, who looks to utilize her Greco-Roman to take down her opponent and subsequently neutralize them early and often. On the other side of the yin yang equation, Shanna Young aims to out cardio her opponents with her Jack of all trades master of none prowess, ultimately leading to finishing late or winning a respectable decision. 

Basically, to reiterate for the layman, Gina is going to either win the grappling battle and finish control/Shanna, or Shanna is going to out-hustle and beat Mazany down the stretch. Now, which outcome is going to take place by the time Saturday comes to a close? Although Shana without a doubt has more dog in her and a better gas tank, she just got violently submitted in her last bout and had the aforementioned kid so all of her positive attributes take a severe blow. 

Gina has looked like an absolute victim when she can't inflict her will almost instantaneously, but with these recent drawbacks factored in, look for the Tim Elliot sponsored Mazany to take Young's back in the 1st and either choke her unconscious or ride her to a decision.
